What does your company do?

We a small business that provides biodegradable balloons for all celebrations bringing sparkle to your event.

What is your biggest success?

My biggest success has been the unbelievable growth of been a small business owner coming from nothing went to School in Mitchell’s plain and building sparkle from my last salary at my previous job , that only sold helium balloons to the public and now we do big corporate events ballooning from place to place even accommodating international events such has television shows.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Starting sparkle in 2020 thinking this is my year to do great things 2 months into the business Covid and lockdown hit and hard. I had a little boutique store that I closed and moved the business home due to high rent and just come out of a pandemic. Couldn’t afford the rent anymore. So now I work out of my garage at home and it’s challenging.
